The unprotected distribution of Sensitive Primary Species Occurrence Data (for example the exact localities of rare, endangered or commercially valuable taxa) has been a concern of the GBIF Secretariat since its beginning. In early 2006, GBIF initiated a process to address this issue, especially in relation to data to be shared through the GBIF network and made visible through the GBIF Data Portal.

An experts’ workshop was then held in early March 2007 that focussed on the various technical issues involved (Chapman 2007a).
